On 26 May 2009, the Indonesian government has extradited Hadi Ahmadi, a dual Iranian-Iraqi citizen, to Australia.
According to Bloomberg, Hadi Ahmadi has been wanted and named as a suspect of Human Smuggling by the Interpol since 7 September 2007. The Australian government accused him of 21 people smuggling offences. He allegedly helped bring illegally people from the Middle East into Australia. He was arrested by our Police on June 2008, and last month Presidernt Susilo Bambang Yudoyono agreed to extradite to Austrlia where he will face Human Smuggling charges with a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment.
Earlier, ICW mentioned in its website that on 10 december 2008, President SBY and Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd have reached an agreement on the extradition of Hadi Ahmadi in exchange with Australia's extradition of Adrian Kiki Aryawan to Indonesia. Adrian, former President Director of Bank Surya, was tried at the District Court of Central Jakarta on July 2002 for missapropriation of debt given by the Indonesian Central Bank (Bank Indonesia). During process of trial, he ran away to Australia. So, on 28 November the Court passed an In Absentia verdict sentensing Kiki with Life imprisonment and Fine of Rp 1.5 Trillion.
However, Tempointeraktif reported that Adrian's extradition shall be decided by a Court in Perth, Western Australia on August 2009.
I hope that Indonesia's extradition of Hadi Ahmadi to Australia will soon be followed by Australia's extradition of Adrian Kiki Aryawan to Indonesia.
